Microservice Builder (Beta): Come Build Dockerized Microservices With Us

Tuesday, April 4
10:00 AM EDT



  • David Currie, Senior Software Engineer, WebSphere Application Server Development

  • Raj Suryavanshi, Product Manager, WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere Remote Server

Microservices architecture is rapidly gaining traction as the choice of software architecture pattern to compose and release software more rapidly and predictably which in turn allows organizations to respond more effectively to their customers’ needs. With the recent release of Microservice Builder (beta), IBM is introducing a turnkey approach to learning, building, running and managing applications in a microservices framework. In this sessions, we will demonstrate step-by-step guidance provided by Microservice Builder, to help developers learn about the intricacies of developing scale-out apps, rapidly compose and build innovative services, and deploy them to various stages using pre-integrated DevOps pipeline. Microservice Builder (Beta) provides a Microprofile.io based programming model for writing Java based microservices. The generated containerized app can then be seamlessly deployed on your laptop, or on-premise Kubernetes orchestrated Docker environments or off-premises Bluemix.

The Evolution of ITSM Towards Cloud Service Management and Operations

Wednesday, April 12
1:00 PM EDT



  • Ingo Averdunk, IBM Distinguished Engineer, Cloud Architecture and Solution Engineering, IBM Cloud

With the evolving landscape towards cloud, IT Service Management (ITSM) has to change as well to stay relevant. This session will highlight work done by the Cloud Architecture and Solution Engineering (CASE) workstream on Cloud Service Management and Operations (CSMO). CSMO refers to the entirety of activities – organized in persona, processes, and tools – that are performed by an organization to plan, design, deliver, operate and control IT and Cloud services offered to customers. We will cover reference architectures for CSMO, and its solutions for Incident Management and Problem Management. We will show the tool chain implemented by CASE using relevant IBM and 3rd party capabilities. In addition to the tools, we will further present the impact of Cloud on processes and the organization. In closing, the recent addition to the Bluemix Garage offering for Service Management is presented, supporting clients in this transformation.
